Whose illegal immigrant law is tougher than Arizona's? Mexico's

Get a load of just how tough Mexico is on people who are in that country illegally: According to the Washington Times, Mexico's General Law on Population mandates that federal, local and municipal police cooperate with the federal immigration authorities in that country in the arrests of illegal immigrants.

Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to "economic or national interests," violate Mexican law, are not "physically or mentally healthy" or lack the "necessary funds for their sustenance" and for their dependents.

The Times notes the hypocrisy of Mexican President Mexican President Felipe Calderon's condemnation of Arizona's more lenient law as a "violation of
human rights."
